The Reds had a tough early season match up with a River Pilot crew that returned every player and won the OVAC AA title last year. The Reds jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. They used their suffocating defense and sweet shooting to build a 47-21 lead at the half. Pilots did make a run at the Reds in third but could never get closer than 14 in the quarter. The Lady Reds were led by Maci Crozier who poured in 32 points. Michaela Flaherty had a 20 point night. Kat Davis has 18. Natalie Stoner has 9 and played tenacious defense. Birdy Falcone, Sydney Purtiman and Mia Gavarkavich also provided quality minutes for the Lady Reds. The Reds are up at arch rival Martins Ferry(2-0) on Monday.
